    'Finished' in inverted commas as I'm already in the midst of changing the saddle and bar tape to black; and the tyres will change to gumwalls or Anthracite Vittoria Corsas (this is partly clearance, partly aesthetic), but here it is:





    Even I wouldn't normally change the tape so quick, but when I went to unwrap one side to re-wrap it, it split. First time that's happened in *ages* - so much so that I have a stash of little-used tapes hung up ready to re-wrap so that I avoid wasting them.

    It pains me to say it (mainly because I'm not fast enough to rock it), but I think this bike actually needs pink tape...

    Think the white tape and saddle riff off the white Parlee script nicely. Shame Parlee can’t provide a gloss finish stem and post though...

    Not really a fan of that one.

    Don't know if it is due to the pictures but that bike look like it is setup more for cyclocross than road riding with that shortish stem and hoods pointing at the sky.

    Stem is 110mm - is that short?

    I think the angle of the pic makes it look janked up.

    Totes. Hydro hoods love to raise their humped, elongated selves to pray to those above, pray that their children, the future generations of hydro levers/hoods, could become less huge and ugly and inelegant.

    The future is here, you can hardly tell the difference with the 9170 levers. Feel so nice in the hands....

    I don't disagree, but black looks classier:





    Too much black now, though.

    Tyres will change regardless as the clearance at the back is a bit too close for comfort with the Challenge PRs. I want to try pink tape, but I don't want to ride the bike with pink tape... maybe some of this half-black, half-pink Supacaz stuff is the answer, but I'm leaving it black for now.

    Interestingly, the H11 levers feel slightly odd when I set them up the same way I setup my rim brake Campag levers. That is to say, they feel like they're tilted back too far.

    Consequently - and as you can probably tell from the updated pic - they're now rotated down a touch.
